What if you slept?
and what if, in your sleep
you dreamed?

and what if, in your dream,
you went to heaven
and there plucked a strange and
beautiful flower?

and what if, when you awoke,
you had the flower in your hand?

Ah, what then?

— Samuel Taylor Coleridge

who's who of who I miss at home... part 1

We spammed Lindsey tonight...
approximately 230 times
She loved it. As you can see here. Jill said next time "...Probably could get it done in 20 minutes or less if we had our game faces on."
Bethany emailed me this the other day:
"Chachi just came running out of her room all excited with her police radio and exclaimed "Somebody just heard gun shots!" ... this is my life :)"
And these two...

llamas are funny

I miss my sister and the things she says...

I miss my parents and their house and their land and their lake and their chickens with their farm fresh eggs everyday. Dare I say I miss the geese too??
minus the teddy bear... I love this.


coser. to sew.

SOON I will have this very sewing machine...
too bad I don't have this room to put it in!
Guess I'll just have to settle for finding an antique sewing table in La Latina (hopefully) and making the boys carry it all the way home.... or an IKEA table in the corner of my room.
one of each. please and thank you
I saw this on a blog today. Y-O-U-{apostrophe}-R-E.

It was rainy and cold today so Erin and I crashed on the couches with our lunch and watched Scoop this afternoon before we attempted to motivate ourselves to do something that did not involve almost-napping.
